Just like Jonathan LeVine Gallery last month (covered), Hi-Fructose is celebrating their five year anniversary with a group show with artists that have been featured in their publication since the very beginning. With so many great artists included, there are bound to be some great pieces like the piece above from Mia (interviewed). The show opens on Saturday, March 13th at Copro Gallery. Full list of […]

Openings: LeBasse Projects “Go East” NYC Pop-Up Show

AM stopped by last week to check out the Culver City based LeBasse Projects and the art that traveled to New York for their “Pop Up” show.  Only in town for less than a week, “Go East” showcased the work of Yoskay Yamamoto (featured and seen above), Tessar Lo, Edwin Ushiro, Joao Ruas, Eric Fortune (interviewed), Mia (interviewed), and Nate Frizzell (featured).

Showing: Nicoletta Ceccoli – “Beauties and Beasts” & Eric Fortune – “Daughters of our Nature” @ Roq La Rue

Two artists whose work we enjoy immensely, Nicoletta Ceccoli (interviewed) & Eric Fortune (interviewed) opened up their joint show a couple weekends ago at Roq La Rue.  Ceccoli’s delicate attention to detail in and her clever juxtaposition of humans and nature (above) along with Fortune’s patient brushwork and mastery of textures/motions were on full display.  If you are lucky enough to be in the Seattle area, definitely take this opportunity to check out not one but two extraordinary artists. See some closer views after the […]

Interviews/Preview: Eric Fortune – “Daughters of Our Nature” @ Roq La Rue

“Daughters of Our Nature,” the latest body of work from Eric Fortune opens at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, tomorrow, July 24 from 6-9 PM.

We had the pleasure of catching up with Eric ahead of the show to find out more about […]

Openings: Tessar Lo – “Future Perfect” & Eric Fortune – “Lost in Light” @ LeBasse Projects

Tessar Lo made his solo exhibition debut this past Saturday with “Future Perfect” (previewed) at LeBasse Projects. Lo certainly impressed with this latest series of dream-like paintings which represents his exploration of “independence and hope for my personal history. Accepting my humanity is to understand that my existence partially relies on others. Though I’d want to know what it’s like to not rely on, need or respond to anyone but myself, no man is an island.” The show also features a notable installation from Lo […]
